Our aim is to educate your drivers in safe driving practises, helping to protect you against legal implications and providing an essential tool for you and your company to ensure your drivers are safe on the road.
Did you know?
The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act (2007) came into force on 6th April 2008. This law means that you, the employer, have a legal duty of care towards your staff and their actions whilst on the road. Similarly the Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places a legal responsibility on the employer to provide care for their drivers. The legal consequences of a failure to provide this care could mean a fine or even a custodial sentence for the senior management involved.
The financial and human costs of an accident at work can be great. Case studies carried out by the Health & Safety Executive show that managing work related road activities can avoid expenses, such as staff days off with injury and the cost of vehicles being off the road.
We can help save you money too!! Improved driving techniques can increase fuel efficiency and knowledge of risk awareness can decrease the risk of accident.
